This UFO case was reported to me by Erica Lukes who is the director of MUFON for the state of Utah. She knows a radio show host who was scanning communications between aircraft and the FAA shortly after midnight on January 14, 2016. He heard a conversation between an airline pilot and Air Route Traffic Control. The pilot reported seeing an extremely long bright UFO object that he estimated a mile wide to his right. The air traffic controller told him that he was looking in the direction of Nephi, Utah. Apparently, the air traffic controller told the pilot that the object was not detected on radar. The UFO object appeared to keep pace with the aircraft. Research showed that the aircraft was American Airlines Flight Number 434 which was enroute from San Francisco, to Philadelphia, at 31,000 feet. The actual sighting time was 12:13 AM MST on January 14, 2016. We were able to find segments of the conversation on the Air Traffic Control archives of controller telling the pilot that Nephi, Utah was off to his right. However, the UFO report was not on the tape. The Doppler radar map for Salt Lake City was also obtained showing possible UFO returns along the route at the time of the sighting. The radar was operating in “clear air mode” which means that the gain is turned up making it more sensitive.

Request: Any passengers on American Airlines Fight number 434 are urged to file a report if they saw anything unusual on the flight. Thanks to William Puckett, Director Website

Editors Note: Radar operators are instructed to deny they have UFOs on their radar screens to anyone.
